Color & Design in Watercolor with Lisa Fertig
September 23-25, 2021
Join us for a spectacular three-day immersive watercolor workshop with professional artist Lisa Fertig! We will explore how to successfully create realistic watercolor landscapes, from the planning stages to completion, with an emphasis on the Properties of Color and the elements and principles of design. Lisa's step-by-step process will put you at ease, as she shares techniques to help you loosen up and feel confident in approaching a watercolor painting.
This workshop is designed to help guide you through the painting process with ease and will include daily demonstrations, personal critiques, and a unique opportunity to re-visit past projects with ideas on how to "fix" and finish pieces you feel have not been successful.
Come and enjoy this exciting watercolor workshop with Lisa Fertig!
